POP-UP Box

Post by Gemini on 26th April 2010, 2:44 am

Hi, I am frequently getting a pop-up box that says my browser is under threat and to download the Microsoft On-Line Protection Tool.

Is this really from Microsoft, or just a hoax? I did search the Microsoft website and download page, but could not get a definitive answer ...........

Sorry to be a dwiebe.



Thank You! in advance Smile

Hi, I've posted the info, and I hope it is right. It's in the place here in Gabe's post. I can't find it under my posts.

I use Firefox, but also IE at times. I can't get my home page, and I can't seem to connect to Microsoft updates, even though I know my service packs are up to date. As well, clicking on a specific link or search items, I will often gets 3 or 4 site pop-ups that have nothing to do with the topic.

Thanks........
